It took me ages to find this place as it's changed its name to the Pontcanna Inn! I arrived at 10.30am. Service OK. I had a Manwich. This is bacon, fried egg and a hash brown in a brioche bun. It was rather nice. I was offered cutlery but not a napkin or condiments. I had to go to the bar to get one. The owner was sat at a table near the bar with his laptop. Nice and tidy but service needs attention.

Stayed overnight. Venue is ideal and in a nice area with easy access to the City on foot. Staff and food were really good. Room in need of a refresh, although nice size.

Dragon taxis recommended by staff were excellent and very reasonable.

All in all a good experience. If room slightly improved, would definitely recommend visitors to stay. Anyone wanting a traditional pub, with good food and atmosphere, this is for you.

We work nearby, so tried to get as a treat to get out of the office for a few hours. The bar staff didn;t acknowledge us initially, the chef came out of the kitchen and they were having a chat and after five minutes served us. The wait on food was more than 45 minutes, so some of my colleagues left without having eaten, and we felt that there were better pubs nearby.

I stayed at the Cayo for 1 night.For my purpose the location was good and the price of £45 for bed and breakfast was acceptable.There was a small car park to the rear which was good you paid when you booked in which is slightly unusual which had to be after 2.30pm.My room a single was smallbut fine if a little tired.I did not eat in the evening but the bar staff were very pleasant and the prices fair.The breakfast was in a room on the 1st floor , to be honest it was a mess, a semi office come store room and had not been decorated for years.The last orders for breakfast was 8.45am far too early I think.The food was freshly cooked and ok but the lady doing breakfast was on her own and under pressure so it took a while.In my mind the possibilities for the Cayo could be good if the accomodation areas upstairs were revamped and upgraded.It is in a good spot but things need to be done if they want repeat business.

We popped in here for a spot of lunch and found the special afternoon menu. Can't remember the exact prices but something like 4.90 for 1 course and up to 8.90 for three! The menu is interesting enough to like. Even the soup is slightly eclectic with Butternut and Maple, the one I chose, with poppy-seed bread. The Aranci balls are rather nice as a starter too. Anyway, shan't go on but suffice to say the food was freshly-cooked, swiftly delivered and tasty. For under £9 for three courses then it is hard to go wrong. Close to Glamorgan Cricket Grounds and bottom of Cathedral Rd, so close to town and Bute Gardens but enough away that you won't be queuing for ages. Reasonably quiet too. Worth a shot if you're peckish.

Room Tip: Close to 24/25 bus stops.
